Calling Clark Kent...
4 September 2007 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Surekill is a mixed bag for me. I so wanted to like this episode a lot. But it just wasn't happening. It's still a decent episode, but ultimately fails to pull the viewer in.

Surekill starts off with a great teaser. It has a man fleeing for his life, seemingly from an unstoppable assassin. The police place him in the drunk tank where he appears to be safe, but the man knows he is not safe. And then, blam!, right in front of the officer's eyes, the man is shot in a locked room.

I think the concept of x-ray vision is a very interesting concept. However, the writer just turned it into a simple, love triangle story. The story is slow-moving, uninteresting, and not that memorable. It was hard for me to take notes on this episode, because of those qualities.

There were a couple of high points to the episode. Mark Snow, once again, does some great music. I probably made more attention to it, because of the slow-moving story. Also, Michael Bowen gives a fantastic performance as Dwight Cooper. He is very believable as a sleazy jerk.

The concept of x-ray vision could have been dealt with in a better, more interesting fashion, thus making Surekill a little off target.
